A home security system offers you peace of mind, but it can get expensive fortifying every entrance and monitoring every corridor. Luckily, the Ring Alarm eight-piece kit with Ring Video Doorbell and Echo Show 5 is 45% off from Amazon. Snag the whole set for $229.98 and ensure your home is protected.
The Ring Alarm Security Kit is designed for one- to two-bedroom homes, and includes one base station, one keypad, four contact sensors, one motion detector, and one range extender. As with other DIY smart home security systems, installation is quick and easy. The platform seamlessly interacts with Ring cameras, doorbells, and lights, supports dozens of smart door locks and switches, and responds to Alexa voice commands.
The white base station serves as the brains of the operation. It features a 1.5-inch LED front-facing ring and a speaker on top, and supports numerous wireless protocols (including dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, and LTE cellular). An internal backup battery promises up to 24 hours of operation in the event of a power cut.
When disarmed, the system’s LED ring glows blue, then turns red when placed in Home (some sensors are armed) or Away (all sensors are armed) mode. A voice announces the current mode, and the device chimes when a sensor is triggered. Connect to the included Alexa-enabled Echo Show 5 to set your alarm, check the security system status, and get smart alerts if your Echo detects smoke or carbon monoxide alarms or glass breaking.
An accompanying keypad has Disarm, Home, and Away buttons, as well as Fire and Police triggers. You’ll need to alert the police or fire department of any issues, unless you subscribe to the Ring Protect Plus monitoring plan. For $10 per month, or $100 a year, get 24/7 professional monitoring, including police and fire dispatch and push and email alerts, as well as unlimited cloud recordings for all Ring cameras.
The system is controlled using the same Android, iOS, and web app as the company’s other devices, allowing you to link all Ring gadgets to the alarm—also compatible with third-party Works With Ring accessories.
Get the entire eight-piece kit, including Ring Video Doorbell and Echo Show 5, for $229.98—45% off the $424.98 list price.
